Greenhouse Gases and Climate Change

Posted: Aug 25,2021

The significant increase of greenhouse gases (GHG) since the industrial revolution is a major driver to earth warming and the observed climate change. Even if the rise in global temperature might seem small, it has significant consequences on our climate, such as the heatwaves, storms, or extreme precipitations, already witnessed in recent years.

Human-related GHG emissions are responsible for the global rise in temperature and its consequences. Scientists and other experts endorse combined strategies to mitigate GHG emissions and in turn consequences of the climate change. Limiting the effects of climate change is also necessary to achieve sustainable development, without making the poor and disadvantaged worse off.
